This week, hundreds of Nigerians took to the streets in the town of Chibok to demand government intervention in rescuing their daughters – more than 200 girls were abducted by a group of Islamic extremist weeks ago. In the days since, social media has been a driving force in drawing attention to the cause, spurring the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls. Many are wondering though where the action is from the international community and when the girls will be returned.
